The Kanaka Maoli (native Hawaiians) were the most literate nation in the world when they were allowed to read and write in their own language. For this once oral culture, writing was magic. It was a way to share their manaʻo (thoughts) and moʻolelo (stories) beyond their own communities. The Hawaiian people in the 21st century are no longer the worldʻs leaders in literacy. This presentation talks about an edtech way to encourage our struggling learners (Hawaiian or otherwise) to once again see the magic in writing and identify themselves as readers and writers.
